Excerpt: Dominion by Melody Manful

Title: Dominion
Author: Melody Manful
Genre: Young Adult/Fantasy

I Dare You.
Look Over Your Shoulders.
Do You See Them?
They are behind you...
They are always behind you.

Abigail Cells had a nightmare the day beforeshe met Gideon, the new guy in school
who has every girl drooling just to be near him. In her nightmare, she was murdered by a magical creature. As she gets to know Gideon, she begins to remember pieces of her nightmare and was shocked when Gideon turned out to be the creature from her nightmare. Who is Gideon really? Should Abby allow herself to fall completely for him, or is he the next disaster waiting to happen?


Dominion has 44 long chapters, although the book has only 258 pages. I took it upon myself to write quotes at the beginning of each chapter, a quote that summons the things that happens in the chapter. Each one of them includes a spoiler to the chapters, so below I want to share with you all three of those quotes and the chapter titles.

Chapter 44: Heaven Can Wait
Quote: “Make no mistake, when the trumpets sound. 
 I won’t be among the people running, praying, or crying. I’ll be the one who looks up and yells,
 ‘Shut the hell up, and get it over with!’.”
Being the last chapter of Dominion, this chapter gives spoilers to the next book in the series, and the quote itself it’s exactly what happened in the last chapter.

Chapter 37: Galaxy Distance
Quote: “Sometimes I’m insecure and I’m full of doubt, but when you appear you lighten up my heart. People say it’s wrong that it has to be you, but I don’t really care, I’m falling into you.”

This quote is from the Series theme song, which you can listen to here:

The song itself contains major spoilers to the entire series, so be sure to listen to it more than once or twice.

Chapter 34: Broken Angel
Quote: “Silence makes me want to scream. Screaming makes me angry. Anger makes me feel lonely. Loneliness makes me want to fell in love. But love leads to a broken heart, and a broken heart screams until there’s only silence.”
Being one of my favorite quotes, this one was fun to write. What you get is what you see, the quote is exactly what happened in the chapter.

I’d like to share more quotes with you, but I’m afraid I’ve given away more than enough. Dominion comes out on the 16th of February, please give it chance when it comes out. For more quotes go to my website see you there!
